24 January 2022

Dear readers,

The beginning of a year traditionally carries a lot of potential and even in these difficult times, we continue to be inspired by our members as they tenaciously work to shape a healthy society fit for all families of today. The Strategic Framework that we have recently launched provides a comprehensive look at how COFACE supports this achievement. 

In 2022, we can’t wait to continue keeping you in the loop about this important journey and we’re happy to say that we’re expanding our team! COFACE is looking for a full-time Policy and Advocacy Officer and a Project Coordinator who are passionate about social rights and the well-being of families.

Lastly, don’t forget to tune in for our first Breakfast Byte of 2022 tomorrow where we will be taking a closer look at single parenting. Register here.

Stay safe,

Bettina
